It is hard to imagine a place with more for teenagers to do than California; there are a myriad of funky shops in Los Angeles and San Francisco, eclectic coffee houses, beaches, mountains, sporting events and theme parks. The state offers a little bit of everything, along with a year-round mild climate. Unemployment rates are as low as 2.6% in some parts of the state, leading to opportunities for work for teenagers who are interested in gaining work experience and earning money.
